A course in light within                            A path in darkness without                            A minefield of missteps
These palsied hands hold                           Those firm fingers flex                                 This fist holds very tight
Wary watchful lidless eye                       Cataract filmed dead gaze                            Hazed outlook turning in
                               Head lowered for the charge                      Shoulders tense and now set
                              Sharp breath over sharp teeth                        Knees bent for the bolt  

Countless options gone                             A way remains now alone                             Final fate then decided
Pieces all in motion again                         Players all doing their part                    Elements collide in reaction
                                    Endgame in action fast                                  All bets held to tally
                                     No more tricks no lies                                    No feint nor dodge
                         No choice but to finish
                               No choice left
